It's at the wrong end of the high street for passing trade but is very good for the price. It shouldn't be so empty at times. The waitresses are always friendly and the standard of food is very good. The Penne con Carne is very good and so are the Pizzas. Always good for a quick lunch if you say... More

The wines are good, although half bottles/ carafes would be good to see. Tasty menu with some very nice dishes. Presentation good, atmosphere... More

Can't believe how quiet this restaurant is even at weekends. The food is very good and the service is exceptional! Good variety of Italian cuisine.

Ate here as part of a group of 8 people. The service was really good and the food was reasonable. Everyone in the group enjoyed their respective dishes. I had pizza. Beware of the chill oil: it's hot (in a good way)!

One of the advantages of being a small scale, local restaurant is that it can focus on what matters - the quality of the food! And Cafe Gondola delivers with flying colours. To be honest, we have only ever done take aways from this place, but the quality of the food has been exceptional. It is one of the very... More

Finally a restaurant that understands that half the experience of the customer is the service, and that was just perfect. We arrived when it was very busy with no reservation (party upstairs as well). They informed us right away that it might be a while to be served. Very important: set the correct expectation. We choose to stay and had... More
